Collaborations are a dime a dozen these days, but we simply can’t resist those that involve ice cream. With the help of Rachel Bilson and Baptiste Giabiconi, Karl Lagerfeld introduced us to Magnum ice cream bars last year, and now Alice + Olivia‘s Stacey Bendet is getting in on the action.
“I love miniskirts!” Bendet told the crowd of editors who gathered to fete the partnership over lunch yesterday. ”When Magnum told me that they wanted us to work on an original miniskirt to coordinate with the launch of their Magnum Mini, I just thought it was something that was so cute and so adorable and so right for Alice + Olivia.”
Magnum’s Mini ice cream bars are now available at retailers across the country, though Bendet’s miniskirt won’t be unveiled until her New York Fashion Week show in September. (By the way, we sampled the smaller-sized treats and can confirm that they are delicious.)
